Overview

Back in Black is the 5th guilty pleasure in this witty series that takes readers behind the scenes of the intoxicating world of Hollywood glitterati. It's time for the Beverly Hills High senior class trip to Washington, D.C. But every year the reigning A-List call in sick and do their own trip to Vegas, baby, Vegas. Anna joins Cammie, Adam, Sam, Dee, and Parker on the Vegas trip to the uber-hip Palms Hotel and Casino. During a hypnosis show on The Trip, the group is hypnotized into telling the truth. Dee is confronted with just how whack-o she's become and Adam and Cammie are forced to confess their forbidden lusty secrets. When Anna's oldest and best friend from NYC, Cyn, and Anna's long-time adolescent crush, Scott, show up in Vegas too, Anna finds out just how dangerous telling the truth can be.

Editorial Reviews

VOYA
The fifth book in this series follows the four main characters-Anna, the wealthy East Coast society girl; Sam, the insecure daughter of an aging action hero; Cammie, the rich and gorgeous bombshell; and Dee, the petite space cadet-to Las Vegas on an unofficial senior class trip. Anna is taken aback when her best friend from New York makes a surprise appearance with her new love-and Anna's former crush-in tow while the typically superficial Cammie considers the depth of her feelings toward her new flame, Adam. Meanwhile Sam struggles with her feelings of jealousy for her new baby stepsister, and Dee becomes convinced that she can communicate telepathically with the child's spirit. All in all, it is business as usual for the A-List girls. Dean's series was created in cooperation with Alloy Entertainment, the same company responsible for Cecily von Ziegesar's Gossip Girl series, and the novels read almost exactly like those series titles would, were their settings transplanted to Hollywood. The prose is as breezy as an issue of Teen People; details of the characters' wardrobes and accessories liberally pepper the book, and readers are whisked from trendy setting to trendy setting along with the gang-not to say that the books are not enjoyable. This entry delivers a few surprises and plot twists that will keep readers engaged, and although most may profess devotion to Anna, the most laid-back character in the novels, part of the pleasure of the books lies in watching and waiting to see what Cammie-a Jessica Wakefield character for the twenty-first century-will do next.

aS ALWAYS THESE BOOKS REMIND ME OF THE SHOW 90210 AND GOSSIP GIRL. i think that this book was very fun to read and i never didnt want to read it. My favorite character would have to be sam and my least favorite, anna. she is very boring. Also i think that parker and sam should end up getting together instead of sam haveing a long distance boyfriend. I thin kthat happens in the next book though. I really like this book and i recommend it too everyone who likes the tv series gossip girl and 90210

Back in Black was an amazing book. I recommend this book for teenagers. This book talks pretty much about High School, The drama, crushes, and with some other twists. If you like the series of Gossip Girl, and the It series you will be sure to love the A-list series. Back in Black is the fifth in the series. Once you pick up this book you can't put it down.

The A-List sereies are the best books for young adults/ teenagers but not to young children under the age of 13 because of the foul language. Once you read the first book, you will want to read them all! Back in Black is the 5th book in the A-list series. I recommend this series to every New Yorker out there! It's a great book!

This book isn't horrible... unless you enjoy mindless reading with no literary development what-so-ever. It is so bland and I find myself at times thinking "Is the author just trying to shove in as much pop culture into one book as can fit?" She rambles about outfits and plasma T.V.'s and why the Oscars were so wonderful but at the same time terrible, but it's for no reason. The book isn't carried by strong characters or plot, but simply by the author's rambling style, giving the book quantity of pages without the quality that should have been there. Overall I would not recommend this book to anyone. The only reason I am reading this is because my friend wanted to use it for our book club, but be sure- next time I will be picking the book.

Dive into the glamorous life filled with five-star hotels, limos, and Grammy parties with Zoey Dean's "BACK IN BLACK" book. It's part of the A-list novel series. Her book gives you exactly what you want. You get to live the high life, yet play it safe in the sanity of your own home. You will suddenly realize that there is way more information backing up the saying Sin City. The A list girls aren't so perfect after all. The party starts as soon as you open the book coming from the point of view of Anna. Anna starts off being the new girl in school in an earlier book in the series. She soon realized that to fit in, you have to do things you swore to god you would NEVER do. From sleeping with strangers, to drugs and alcohol, this teen shows you the danger of fun. In BACK IN BLACK, Anna goes with Sam; her new founded BFF, to the Grammys, because Sam's dad is a movie producer. All the seniors decided to skip the senior trip to Washington DC to go to Vegas! Thrilling, right? Ha. They never realized that some drinks and a hypnotist later, they would be regretting this night ever happened. Cammie, the girl that Anna tried so hard to like, but couldn't due to her nasty attitude and cockiness, does some terrible things in Vegas that may cause their so-called friendship to go right out the window. Zoey Dean's novels are always good. They show you the thrilling side of being part of such a great life, yet making it easy for teenagers to comprehend and connect to. My favorite part of this book is when they go on their senior trip and accidently spill their secrets. Everybody is interested to find out all the skeletons in the closets of these three goddesses. This book shows you exactly what not to do when you go to Vegas. Simply put: teenagers what-not-to-do bible. BACK IN BLACK is a heart racing escape from your everyday boring life as a regular teenager. The way Dean makes you so jealous of these girls is astonishing. Subsequently, BACK IN BLACK, just like the previous books in the series leaves you wanting more. You literally want to run to read the next book, because what happens in the end makes your jaw drop to the floor in awe. Zoey Dean's BACK IN BLACK, is like no other party book, it goes beyond what any eighteen year old can sit and try to think of fun things to do.
